Hey Edgewood College, what are you reading?

Man sitting in a chair reading the book 'The Way Through The Woods.'From Library Director, Nathan Dowd.

Currently I am reading the engaging and unique memoir The Way Through the Woods by Litt Woon Long.

Through a friend, I recently learned the basics of foraging for wild mushrooms and therefore was drawn to this book. After reading the introduction, I quickly realized it was so much more. The author provides a compelling account of their decent into grief after the sudden death of her husband. As a way to cope and get out of the house, the author teaches herself about mushrooms and foraging. It is a remarkable tale of her journey out of sorrow and grief and into the fantastical world of fungi. Even if you have little interest in mushrooms, it is a wonderful guide to dealing with loss and learning to love life again.

On a side note, while our library does not own a copy of this book I was able to get it using our excellent interlibrary loan service Oscar Express.
